CommUNIty is an initiative that supports sustainable partnerships between voluntary/community organisations and Leeds Beckett University with an emphasis on projects focused on health and wellbeing.

Our overarching goal is to find new, more effective ways to improve health and reduce health inequalities in communities.

Combining the resources and knowledge of community organisations with those of our university creates benefits for both partners: it improves knowledge exchange and gives staff from both sectors access to different sources of expertise, widens participation and opens up opportunities for students and research.

Interested in higher education?

Our Community Learning Course is a 6 session course which includes 5 tasters of degree programmes offered at Leeds Beckett University, focusing on health and community topics. The course welcomes diverse participants from groups who are under-represented in higher education. It is an opportunity to see what university is like and if it is something that appeals.
